Touring Central America
There may only be seven countries in Central America, but the range of backpacker tours may seem dizzying at first. Broadly speaking, they fall into two categories: leisure and volunteering. The former can be anything from hiking up a volcano in Costa Rica or trekking through the jungle in Guatemala, to bar crawls and dancing in Panama City. Volunteering tours give you the chance to contribute to the numerous wildlife conservation programmes doing vital work across the continent to preserve its unique animal and marine life. There are even tours that give you the chance to do a little bit of both.
The best approach for choosing a backpacking tour in Central America is to work out exactly what interests you most about the region, and look through the range of tours we have available to see what most closely matches. Whatever you pick, when you visit Central America it’s guaranteed to be an adventure you won’t forget in a hurry.
